  • FHC Resource Centre  closed from 4pm 8th March to 10am 13th March 2019

    The FHC Resource Centre will be closed from 4pm on Friday 8th March until 10am on Tuesday 13th March 2019. This means the Resource Centre is NOT OPEN Saturday 9th, Sunday 10th or Monday 12th (Labour Day).

    This closure is due to essential ongoing maintenance required for our I.T. equipment and infrastructure.

    This particular time was chosen as it a long week-end, involving a public holiday, thus having minimal impact on our Members and Visitors. 
    Thank you for your understanding,
     FHC Council.

We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of us contains within this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories and future promise. – Edward Sellner
